This chair is made completely out of cedar. I designed the chairs arms and back pieces on tag board and cut them out. Then I traced the pieces on cedar I had plained down to size and had ready for my chair. I used the band saw to cut the pieces out. To make the pieces exactly the same I nailed them together using tiny finishing nails and sanded them accordingly so they would match up. I did the same with the back pieces. The two outside pieces are identical, as well as the two inside.
This chair is actually pretty comfortable. The chair’s I have sat in before havnt been the greatest or that comfy. But I thing the angle is perfect on this chair. Which makes the comfortability of it awesome. After sanding it down nice and smooth I cut and installed plugs made of cedar to put in over the screws. Then I sanded those down flat and was finished with my chair. The last thing I did was put a few coats of polyurethane for the finish on my chair. It brings out the awesome colors of the cedar and looks great.
